Reggae has seen a surge in popularity in the last decade or so, and it's understandable. Lots of guys who grew up listening to Bob Marley and others are now making music of their own. New Kingston definitely has its roots in traditional reggae on the new album Come from Far.

A Kingston Story: Come From Far expands upon the sound that the band introduced on the Kingston Fyah EP.  The album’s first single “Come From Far” showcases the groups talents with a lilting foundation roots instrumental, bubbling keys, and fine lyrical prowess.  “Honorable and the Beast” is an exceptionally strong roots reggae tune.

After peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Album chart with 2015’s Kingston City, New Kingston is back with a brand new offering entitled A Kingston Story: Come From Far, due out August 25th on Easy Star Records. The title track “Come From Far,” available for free download on the band’s website, rides the fine line between forward momentum and absolute laid-backness. The musical attitude is balanced by a lyrical message declaring “look how far we come, look how far we haffi go.”
